We also inform you that our company has appointed a data protection officer. Contact details of the data protection officer: Martina Masopustová, e-mail: dpo@eassistance.eu.

Provision of patients´ personal data is a statutory requirement and the patient has an obligation to provide the data just as a healthcare professional has the right to require the data from the patient.
